How to create a well-rounded child
The challenge for us as parents and teachers is to keep creativity alive. We need to be providing time away from screens and desks and provide time to experience new ways of thinking.
Drama can recreate situations using new perspectives to reach new conclusions. By trusting others and by sharing with them our thoughts become more open. Drama truly develops the whole child and not just one aspect of their personality. Exploration and curiosity are what makes drama a playful activity.
Performing Arts in general empowers children to communicate more and this is a skill needed in any job that undertake in the future.
At Jesters we strive to give opportunities to all our students and we produce confident, talented children who are able to project their opinions, perform and listen to other people and we are really proud that they come away equipped to become creative and well rounded adults.
